america and government, monica, you can put all your cards on the table for a midterm election, if you take control of the house you have two years of an open playing field. do yo think that is the strategy? >> absolutely. it is all about 2014. remember the president had the run of the field in his first two years before the house flipped to republican control. he misses that. and what he wants for his legacy is, as he said in 2008, the fundamental transformation of the nation. by that he means turning america into a european-style socialist state or social democracy. he had the run of the field for the first two years. he wants his last two years as president to be exactly that. so everything he is doing is geared toward flipping the house of representatives back to democratic control. and if you're the republican party, not just the national party but right on down to the state and local levels, bill, here's what you do. you focus on the house. you focus on individual districts. you focus on how you can retain control of the house and pick up seats. bill: focus on the majority, r

government to interim government to election toss try to get in there and help them with security, because it was clear that that was going to be one of their highest needs once they finally got stabilized. so there were a number of meetings. and i personally, i went to libya in october of 2011. i spoke with the then leadership, i met with them in international settings. we sent teams out, both civilian and military experts to try to help them. until recently, while they were going through their transitions it was a very difficult conversation because they didn't have, you know, the authority they thought. but now we're beginning and we have a long list of ways that we're trying to help improve security in libya. >> for example the october 2011 meeting at that meeting did this issue come up with regards to the inability of the libyan government to protect our institutions. did that come up at all in that conversation? >> we obviously talked a great deal about the deteriorating threat environment in libya. one of the reasons we had our own people on the ground, and why we were look

election twice with over 5%, 50% of the vote, which is, you know, he is, he and joe biden, those only two offices everybody votes for. and he has won. he got over 50%. so he will make his case. i think what is different, what is significantly different, there will be confrontation but i think the first time you're seeing the president move hess campaign organization, we just saw this in the last few days, move it into advocacy on the issues for his agenda during the second term. that's unprecedented. no president's ever been able it do that. and this time it is not with some rinky-dink campaign organization that we've seen in the past. this is the biggest campaign organization ever seen in the united states. 28, 30 million people. those people making the case to their members of congress regardless of party, whether the member is democrat or republican. i think could change the way we look at a lame duck second term presidency because of the power of that grassroots organization. bill: wow! that's a big statement, joe. back to the initial question though. >> sure. bill: blount make as

will oppose it today despite the election results of 2012. if you listen to senator jeff sessions of alabama seemed to be very, very opposed to the bill. what i'm hearing from leadership sources in the senate they will sit back and not go one way or the other on this because nothing has been written. they want to see what happens under leahy and the judiciary committee and they will not stick their neck out for it right now. bill: thank you, byron york teeing it up for us in washington. there you go. martha: one of the most outspoken senators on the issue of immigration has been senator marco rubio from florida. he is one of those group of eight senators who unveiled that plan yesterday. he will join us in a couple minutes with his concerns about the president's plan and whether he thinks it could scuttle the compromise marco rubio, coming up here in "america's newsroom.". >>> meanwhile we have new numbers what americans think about this immigration reform idea. new "fox news poll". 66% of the those questioned do support a policy that allows a path to citizenship. 17% say illegals mu
